Hello, everyone, and welcome to the weekly update email/post from Exploring Sobriety, where I share my latest writing about addiction and recovery.

Let me start by saying happy Sober October! To anyone who has chosen this month to quit drinking, congratulations and good luck! I hope the articles in this email can help you along the way.

From the Newsletter

The first that I’d like to share is: Sobriety Won’t Always Be So Hard. This is the latest email from my Substack newsletter, and it’s aimed at anyone who has recently quit drinking. You can read the essay here, or check out the entire newsletter archive here.

My sobriety writing is spread out over two places: here on Medium and on Substack. The Substack newsletter has been going for almost exactly half a year, and I think that it’s got some of my very best writing. If you haven’t checked it out yet, make sure to take a look.

From the Blog

This past week I also wrote a few new blog posts about sobriety, including some tips for Sober October. Check them out:

Thank You!

Thank you very much for giving these a read. I hope they’ll help you, especially if you’ve just recently quit drinking. The first month is hard, but it really will get easier!

Have a great week!
